Wave Speed and the Wave Equation

Design for the OCR H156 A/S level. This lesson covers the wave equation and the relationship between intensity, amplitude and distance from the source. This resource includes a presentation and a worksheet that accompanies it. Learning Objectives Understand and apply the formula v=fλ. Understand the intensity of a progressive wave I=P/A and that intensity α amplitude2

Vectors and scalars, quantities, speed & velocity, distance, displacement etc, calculating speed.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. For USA - this lesson is for use between 8th to 10th grade. This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: * Explain the difference between speed and velocity. * Explain the difference between a scalar and a vector. * Name all the important scalars and vectors. * Successfully use the speed equation. This carefully crafted lesson is over 40 slides long, and is full of learning activities as below: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - unscramble the words. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Matching task - answers are provided. * Activity sheet (unique) - simply print for each student. * Practical / student experiment. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer marking * Self marking * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Play ball. * Quiz Quiz Trade game. * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework * Scientific Numeracy activity * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons created by “Barclayfox” once they appear on TES. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search box/engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. This lesson is part of a series, whilst they all work very well as standalone individual lessons you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundles – contain 3 or more of these lessons at a discounted price (however please note not all my series are bundled). 1. Vectors and scalars. 2. Forces between objects (contact / non-contact and Newton’s 3rd law). 3. Forces and Newton’s third law (N3L). 4. Resultant forces, free body diagrams. 5. Forces and acceleration F=Ma 6. Required practical F=Ma 7 to 12 - please see list in this powerpoint Thank you, and happy teaching! Yours, Barclayfox.

Digital markbook for AQA Science.

Digital markbook for AQA Science.

I have created and have been using for a number of years this digital markbook. Every teacher in my department use this on a lesson by lesson basis for KS4 and topic by topic basis for KS3; we use these in relation to the personal learning checklists (another of my uploads). This way of tracking progress has been invaluable in guiding the revision of my students, focusing them on the specific areas for their development. It is a simple process of entering R, A or G based on whatever criterion you decide works best for you.

I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson outcomes, students will be able to: * Draw “free body diagrams”. * Explain Newton’s first law. * Explain Newton’s third law. * Successfully calculate “resultant” forces. This carefully crafted lesson is over 40 slides long, and is full of learning activities as below: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Activity sheet (unique) - simply print this slide for each student. * Activity sheet - answers. * Gap fill activity - all answers are provided. * Quiz with answers - using mini whiteboards (if available) * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer or self marking * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Play ball. * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework * Scientific Literacy activity. * Scientific Numeracy activity * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt.

Light (Reflection, refraction, light dispersion, colour and filter) - Year 8, KS3

Light (Reflection, refraction, light dispersion, colour and filter) - Year 8, KS3

A brief note for KS 3 students, especially Year 8 students. In this topic, you will learn about 1. The properties of light. 2. How light travels from luminous sources. 3. Classify transparent, translucent and opaque materials 4. Using ray diagrams to show how we see both luminous and non-luminous objects. 5. Understand the Law of reflection. 6. Understand the how light is reflected on a smooth and rough surface. 7. Understand refraction occurs when light passes through materials of different densities. 8. Light is dispersed when it passes through a prism and form a spectrum.

Energy Transfers

Energy Transfers

Designed to deliver to KS4 group. Can be altered for a range of abilities. Reinforces law of conservation of energy Leads students through definition of closed system. Independent research (QR codes to BBC bitesize) to allow students to research different heat transfer types. Visual descriptions of each to help reinforce learning. Worksheet included regarding design and function of vacuum flask
